Argument Speech

Test scores reflect how good the teacher is.

Specific Purpose: To persuade the audience the test scores reflect how good the teacher is.

Central Idea: To choose a good teacher or professor is very important for a student, so when student choose the lecture and want to take it, he will consider about the professor. Some professor will give student high test scores and students will think that is a good professor and some professor give the scores serious so that makes student think he is not a good professor. Because a good source will help a student get good GPA during the school time that makes student think good teacher will give high test scores

Introduction: when I was in the university and register the class, I was found there are some core class was be register by the senior or junior, even there is no more seats for others but for this lecture is still has other professor, however there is no one willing to take that. From this situation I was found the professor which is full registered must be a good teacher because he gives the student high test scores. In my speech, I am going to show you why the test scores reflect how good the teacher is.


  1. For a majority of students a good test score use to determinate the professor, professor understand how important is the test scores is important for the student in the school.
  2. Study is a progress, everyone has the different study ability, for low study ability student the good test scores can increase their interesting in learning.

Counter Argument

You may say that a good professor is teach student the knowledge not give them the high scores.

  1. Test score is not really representing what you learn from the professor.

The relationship between test scores and grades is the ability to analyze if students are actually learning the course being taken. However, this doesn’t mean that students grade and scores reflect how effective the teachers ability of teaching is. Grades aren’t only based on test scores there also based on homework, class work, projects and performance. All education you learn isn’t based on test such as learning how to read or remembering formulas because, education comes in many levels.


Base on the evidence above to proof the test scores reflect how good the teacher is.




I Have a Dream speech Chaojie Yikang Xing

In the speech it use the current American social to start the speech and the thesis of the speech is ask the freedom for the humanity. People’s impression is that some Americans belong to black people. Something was stripped of him. The king of difference is called the “shameful condition”. Today, I am writing about the same shameful situation of drama. Ignorance and complacency. Undoubtedly, in Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, his intention and goal is to treat blacks equally according to the law.Martin Luther King is a great inspiring leader who made a difference in the lives of many people. But I think It is so sad that his “Birthday” can’t be celebrated as a wonderful and life-changing event in history. Nowadays, Many of us have forgot how we should stand together as people, support each other, respect each other and truly love one another.So If we could celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day to remind us about what he did for our and to continue his dream of peace, love and justice, that would be great.

response in Canves

from Cammy’s response, I found both of us are talking about the unique religious and cultural. and I agreed with this because I think the cultural and religious are the representatives of a country, that is good for their own belief or something else. like in my county China, most people in China didn’t have a religious belief, but we have our own culture which is cannot be together with others. Everyone knows the culture of a country has many years accumulate that is unremovable.

English( cultural and policy)

English skill

what language loss looks like

the main argument of her presentation is Heritage language is lost in the second generation East Asian American

In the beginning, she uses an example of herself to start the speech that makes her get the attention of the audience.

Her speech is to use some evidence from American English Education to develop her argument.

The summary part of her speech she uses a good delivery, she first says the English only is from the policy and culture of a nation, also she announced that the false binary and assumptions from the Asian. And these are an issue for the language loss in the today.

I think the body language from her is doing a little for the delivery of the information. But that is good because doing too much body language makes the speech is not miss.

Visual Argument

The advisement is the logo for the DreamWorks Film company. The DreamWorks’s movies are usually talking about humanity‘s reality, kindness, and beauty by the humorous. in the visual is the child fishing in the moon and the color and the logo of the advisements is easy for people to understand also it is indicated the sprite of the advisement. so I think the advisement has used the ethos very well because everyone has a different understanding of the advisement and this kind of advisement makes people interesting it.

Is this plagiarism or not? 

Directions: You will find a series of student produced texts based on sources. Read the original and then read the student text and decide whether the student has plagiarized. If so, how would you correct the problem? In the process of correcting, follow APA style to demonstrate what the in-text citation should be like and create a References list for them. 

(Excerpts below are from the following text: Clines, R.H & Cobb, E. R. (2012) Research Writing Simplified, 7th Edition. Upper Saddle River, NJ: Pearson.) 

1. Excerpt from page 23 of an article in 2011 by William Ellis entitled “Culture in Transition.” 

World problems such as poverty, pollution, war, and hunger are inherent in the current system of world order based on nation-states and economic competition. They can be solved if people know and understand one another on a global, grass-roots basis. By developing people-to-people linkages irrespective of national borders, we can start to ameliorate global tensions and inequities. 

Student versions: 

Is this plagiarism or not? Y or N 

__Y___William Ellis asserts that world problems such as poverty, pollution, war, and hunger are inherent in the current system of world order based on nation-states and economic competition (p. 23). 

First, he just copies words by words, and it should have the quotation. And the year of publication should after the name.

__Y___Global tensions and inequities can be solved if people begin to help one another on a grass-roots basis, moving beyond the current world order of economic competition (Ellis 23). 

It is MLA fomular not APA.

___Y__Ellis (2011) argues that global problems are often a result of exploitation inherent in economic competition. He contends that “grass roots….people-to people linkages irrespective of national borders” can do much to ease global tensions (p. 23). 

it didn’t use the correct citation

__Y___Economic competition is at the basis of many of the world’s problems (Ellis 23). Only by seeing ourselves as a single family without the separation of national boundaries can world tensions begin to be eased. 

Even the author did not copy from the paragraph but he still needs the citation.

___N__Ellis (2011) argues that world problems are caused by overpopulation and that the only possible solution is an enforced tax on families who have more than one child (p. 23).

2. Original Text: 

Assertive individuals tend to feel more in control of their lives, derive more satisfactions from their relationships and achieve their goals more often. They also will obtain more respect from, and inspire confidence in, those with whom they interact since they tend to be viewed as strong characters who will not be easily swayed. 

Hargie, O., Saunders, C., & Dickson, D. (2000). Social Skills in Interpersonal Communication. London: Routledge, p. 271. 

Student Version: 

Because they are not readily influenced, assertive people gain respect from others, and they experience success in guiding their own lives, nurturing good relationships, and achieving their goals (Hargie, Saunders, and Dickson, 2000, p. 271).
